Join the Institute on World War II and the Human Experience for our annual fall lecture on the international armaments business in Eastern Europe leading up to World War II. Jonathan Grant is a Professor of History at Florida State University and a specialist in modern Russian history. He has authored Between Depression and Disarmament: The International Armaments Business, 1919-1939 (2018), Rulers, Guns, and Money (2007), and Big Business in Russia: The History of the Putilov Company in Late Imperial Russia, 1868-1917 (1999).
This lecture will focus on the business effects of disarmament discussions in Eastern Europe prior to World War II, and the connections between business, arms trade, disarmament, and re-armament.
There will be a reception after the lecture.
